Solid effort. The aroma is fairly mild for a bourbon barreled beer. Beautiful dark auburn color though. It’s a little thin for what I look for in a barreled beer, it disappears quickly in your palate. Carbonation is nice. Overall it is an enjoyable beer but not up to the standards of the better bourbon barreled beers. A gentle introduction to the uninitiated.

Bottle at James’. Pours a clear brown with a thin to medium tan head. Soft bourbon on the nose, vanilla, sweetness, wood. Medium bodied, big and sweet, long wood, loads of vanilla and bourbon. Slow bourbon into the finish, long and sweet. Oakes (17679) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
Medium brown. Big head. Sweet and a light sticky dark sugar. Rouch of apple note. Boozy, has a strong barrel note, so sticky as well. Assertive and not necessarily balanced. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Poured from the bomber from tavour. Thin head, little lacing. Aroma is of alchohol. Flavor isn’t to much alcohol, the oak comes through, some smokey. Pretty woodsy though. Pretty good. I just burped up some dark cherry flavors. Yum. monk191 (1978) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2016
A nice smoky, woody beer. Pours a deep red with a tan head. Smells of smokiness and wood, whiskey and maltiness. Taste is sweet, with lots of whiskey, vanilla and smoked wood. Had in the bottle.

Tap at Marciero. Almost black, dark brown, hazy, lace. Caramel nose, bourbon, vanilla. Big bourbon falvor, lots of vanilla, too much maybe, chocolate, treacle, tasty, mostly bourbon. Capa (3299) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2015
This is the 2014 version drank in the 2015 season (so, a year of age). Deep reddish-brown with minimal tan head. Chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, plum, and brown sugar. Full bodied. Plenty of booze in the finish along with sweet malts, and brown sugar. Very well done. donandres (527) - Bayombong, PHILIPPINES - DEC 6, 2015

Whiskey and brow sugar aroma. 22oz bottle at Lakehouse. Very sweet. Vanilla and coconut with cocoa ending. Not bad. Very good TimE (5817) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 29, 2015
Medium brown color. Nice soft bourbon and oaky nose, mildly sweet malty. The mouth is medium full body. Modestly sweet with the bourbon is subdued. Very mellow and rounded with alcohol well hidden. Very pleasant beer.
